We kick off summer-fun-in-the-city with the OMG Art Bar – the new hang out on Main Street. The OMG Art Bar will be open the first Saturday of every month and at random. Art Bar will feature guest artists, surprising visual projections, late night dance beats with smashing refreshment services. Art Bar is a social media art hub for smartphones and their owners, all recording devices welcome.
On June 1 join us to celebrate the arrival of The Arrival Agency. This new venture is from our good friends, formerly the Waldorf Production Team. Arrival is Vancouver’s hot new creative + events agency with a mission to create cultural experiences that are exceptional and fun. WOW, in July they are kicking ass by programming the Khatsahlano Music + Art Festival July 13, Fuse at the Vancouver Art Gallery July 19 and Black Flag July 20! This fall they will re-imagine the legendary Fox Cinema into a cool music venue for Main Street.
Please join Arrival Agency’s Tom Anselmi, Ernesto Gomez, Danny Fazio and DJ’s: Cherchez La Femme, Mandy Lyn and The Amigos for an evening of sound and visuals. Event hosted by Paul Wong, c u there.
OMG ART BAR 2
On Main Gallery presents
OMG ART BAR 2 , Saturday July 6
Various Points of Tension: Þatrick Mcmanus
1965 Main St. Vancouver
New art by Patrick McManus: set-design, live and prerecorded visuals, installation, music and dance.
Curated by Matt Troy
This interdisciplinary art party will be a crossing of categorical divides: music, art, creation, light, dark and participation. McManus will present a series of projections using 2d and 3d shapes, unconventional screens and objects incorporating projection mapping and mixing audio-visual elements: a convergence of various points of tension.
Patrick McManus is an emerging artist. He has created site-specific installations as part of the Drop-In Video Expo 2012, and Camera/whore at the infamous short-lived Rubble Gallery. He is a member of Chapel Sound, a rag-tag group of artists pushing the boundaries between art and music. They are responsible for numerous new art initiatives including a recent exhibition at the Chinatown Experiment a pop-up shop and at the monthly SVCRET CITY party at Fortune Sound Club.
The OMG Art Bar is a new series launched in June by OMG Artistic Director Paul Wong. It is an event on the first Saturday of every month (and at random). Art Bar features guest artists, surprising visual projections, and dance beats with smashing refreshment services. It is a social media art hub for smartphones and their owners, all recording devices welcome.
